Age: Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
Residency status: This loan is only available to residents of Australia.
If you receive Centrelink payments: You can apply if you receive Centrelink payments, but what you borrow may be limited so that your repayments in any period do not exceed 20% of your gross income. This includes repayments to other lenders, as well as the new loan you're applying for from Cash Converters.
If you're in a Part 9 Debt Agreement: You aren't eligible for a Cash Converters Personal Loan. However, if you have been successfully discharged from a Part 9 Debt Agreement you are able to apply.
If you have bad credit: Cash Converters will consider your current financial situation when you apply. If they see you will be able to manage your loan, your application will be considered.
If you're a casual employee: You need to earn at least $300 per Week to apply for a Cash Converters loan.
